Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi had claimed that the JNU student had raised anti-national slogans during the controversial event in the campus.
Meanwhile, officials at the Ministry of Home Affairs have suggested that Kumar may not have raised anti-India slogans
PTI reported on Tuesday that as per inputs from security agencies, Kanhaiya Kumar - arrested on charges of sedition - may also not have made any inflammatory speech at the JNU event which is at the centre of a raging controversy.
MHA officials are of the view that the Delhi Police may have acted out of “over enthusiasim” in slapping of the serious charge of sedition against Kumar.
